Carolyn Mahaney will speak at The Gospel Coalition National Women’s Conference in Orlando this weekend. The conference will be streamed live online starting tomorrow, June 22. Nearly 4,000 women from around the world will be attending this inaugural women’s conference. The broadcast will feature every event that takes place on the conference main stage through Sunday at noon. This will include Carolyn's workshop on Saturday at 1:30PM on "The Snare of Compare" (from John 21:15-22).
We'll consider the risen Lord's dramatic confrontation with Peter, in which Peter is called to face a future he would not choose but cannot change. Peter's first instinct is to compare—to look to those around him rather than to his Lord. How do we respond to challenges we don't want but can't change? The human temptation is to measure our lot against that of others. How can we turn this temptation to compare ourselves with others into a heart of gospel ministry to others? Jesus' challenging words to Peter can point the way.
Please join us in praying for Carolyn, the other conference speakers, and those attending. May God use this conference as a means to share biblical encouragement as sisters, daughters, wives, mothers, and friends.
